I had the best time with these kids, they were so helpful; wanting to hold my reflector and pose for me. They were talkative, and so funny. I could have stayed and taken their photos for hours, and seriously look how adorable they are with their mamma – those outfits are PERFECT. I love it […]

The Jackson family purchased this photo shoot at the Bolingbrook Ward YW Auction in the spring. We’ve been trying to schedule  it for a couple months but sweet Gracie has been super sick and we haven’t been able to make it work. I had some sessions schedule and asked them if they were able to […]

OH. MY. GOSH. I Love these pictures SO, SO much!!! {I know, I know, I say that about EVERY session!!} And it’s true. Every time! I love their flowy dresses, the soft, beautiful colors and those adorable flower crowns! I love the white lace flowers and the beautiful sun, but most of all I love […]

OH. MY. GOSH. These might be my favorite pictures EVER, like I want to print them really, super big and put them on my own walls!!

I have 5 brothers, 3 of them served missions around the world. One served in Virginia, one in South Africa and one in the […]

  I love meeting high school seniors for their senior photos. Sydney actually graduated about a week before we took these pictures. Time got away from them and they didn’t happen last fall and that’s totally ok!! Senior pictures can happen anytime, there is no time limit! Most seniors contact me during the summer between […]

There is something so precious and special about an 8 year old child who is ready to make covenants, choose the right and be baptized. There is something special about being able to have your very own photo shoot, especially if you’re like me and you grew up in a big family and you rarely […]

I’ve known Alexa since she was just a baby. I started watching her at my house when she was about 8 or 9 months old and she was a part of our life for many years. She came everywhere with us and did everything with us, it was kinda just like having another one of […]
